Inspiration & Galleries
The winter season is full of memory-making adventures, rituals, and celebrations. Whether you enjoy exciting times on snowy peaks or cozy evenings by the fire, there is so much to love about the coldest months of the year. While you might like to remember these events through pictures and videos, the miniature garden provides a unique and hands-on outlet for reminiscing. All you need to get started are some carefully chosen fairy garden accessories, an eye for landscaping, and playful imagination.
For those who live in climates with snowy, cold winters, winter offers a plethora of outdoor activities that are ideal for memory making. Do you remember ice-skating on a neighborhood lake while wrapped up in scarves and mittens? You can easily turn your miniature garden’s pond into a dreamy ice-skating haven by switching out blue pebbles for an icy-white, sprinkling of snow sparkles, or covering your pond water with a piece of hard plastic that has been cut to fit. Just add garden fairy ice skaters and perhaps some benches ringing the pond, and you will have yourself some wintry fun!
Other activities that bring the flakes front-and-center are skiing, snowboarding, and snowman building. You can find all various types of snowmen, snow owls, and more to enrich your miniature garden. Landscape your snow-scape with white pebbles, glitter, or SnoWonder, a nontoxic, environmentally friendly artificial snow. Indoors, SnoWonder lasts for months, and cleanup is a snap!
If snow makes you shiver, there is still a variety of unique ways to decorate your miniature garden for the winter season. A warm bonfire, ringed with caroling miniature garden fairies, brings back memories of singing holiday tunes around the neighborhood or the piano. An extremely easy solution for miniature gardens is the addition of a plate of gingerbread cookies or a hot chocolate stand. Evergreen miniature trees, baskets of plaid blankets, and woolen socks hanging on the line all help bring warm memories to life in the fairy garden.
Remember driving around your town and looking at holiday lights and seeing your neighbor’s homes lit up for the season? You can bring the “warm fuzzies” to your miniature garden through the use of LED Light Strings and LED Star Light Strings, which come in a variety of colors. These can be used to decorate fairy houses in a traditional style, or strung throughout a container garden filled with miniature plants.
Winter is also prime time for holiday memories. No matter what holidays your family celebrates, you can incorporate them into your miniature garden through decorations, fairy garden accessories, and landscaping choices. A wide variety of Christmas miniature trees, Hanukah menorahs, and more can be found, as well as miniature gardening nativity sets, garlands, gifts, and sleighs. A simple DIY project could include decorating a tiny sign to read “Santa Stop Here,” “Happy Kwanzaa!” or any other holiday message your heart desires. Wreaths, stars, and miniature church buildings can help bring back memories of holidays long past.
If you have favorite family photos from winter seasons and holidays, you might look to them for inspiration when planning your miniature garden. Whether the pictures involve loved ones opening gifts, participating in snowy activities, or sharing a delicious meal, you can draw on those pleasant memories when planning and planting your miniature gardens.
